Go Texan Day: We want to see your office's getups

When I was a little girl, I knew when it was rodeo season ? not because I was patiently awaiting the deep-fried everything and playing with goats at the petting zoo, which I definitely was ? but because on the Friday before the rodeo rolled out, I was dressed Texan to a T. I'd have tiny cowboy boots with a matching hat and a bandana around my neck; and a few years, my mom handmade my Western wear. While I might not still have her as my personal clothier, she instilled the tradition in me just?

How to grow your communication skills

Human communication is complex, but the first thing that comes to mind when we hear the word ?communication? is often spoken or written words. However, the words we speak and hear are just one way we communicate, and some studies show that most of our communication takes place through other means. Humans communicate in many different ways, such as verbal, nonverbal, body language and artistic communication, which is through images or music. The way we communicate with people affects all aspects?

New Houston LGBT chamber of commerce forms

Houston has many different chambers of commerce that identify with different geographic regions and demographics. Beginning this spring, the LGBT community will have one as well.

Jordan Jankowski took unique path to Astros

An ordeal Jankowski now chalks up to a miscommunication cost him the chance to pitch in the Division II College World Series but ultimately solidified his draft stock with the team that selected him and, five years later, promoted him to the major leagues. Reached by phone Thursday, Catawba coach Jim Gantt said the decision was made because NCAA rules at the time stipulated a college player lost his eligibility if he worked out for a professional team before his college season ended. Jankowski signed for $2,000, the typical $1,000 offered to seniors drafted in the later rounds plus an additional $1,000 the Astros gave him as reimbursement for his travel. [...] looking back, Jankowski will never truly know whether he ever would have sniffed the major leagues if he hadn't booked a flight and attended that pre-draft workout.

U2 finds renewed fire playing songs that defined the group

Iconic Irish rock act U2 returned to Houston Wednesday night, r performing its landmark 1987 album "The Joshua Tree" in its entirety for a nostalgia-primed crowd at NRG Stadium. The show was the band's first stage appearance since Monday night's deadly terror attack at a Manchester, England arena where 22 fans were killed by a suicide bomber after an Ariana Grande set. U2 came out just after 8:30 p.m. and treated thousands of their fans t to a small handful of the band's biggest hits, including the pulsing "Sunday Bloody Sunday," before launching into presenting every stunning track off of "The Joshua Tree" in running order as each appeared on the album. An audible wave of joy swept through the crowd as the signature chimes from opener "Where The Streets Have No Name" fired off from the fingers of The Edge, the band's influential guitarist.

Federal lawsuit accuses CPS of discriminating against black children, families

A federal civil rights suit in Houston accuses Child Protective Services of discriminating against African-American children, saying they are likelier to be separated from their parents and extended families than white children. The suit brought a group of community activists Tuesday to the federal courthouse in Houston, where they decried generations of "robbed and stolen opportunities for kinship families" through what they contend is a pattern of discrimination by CPS. [...] the emphasis was on the bigger picture - that black children living in poverty are over-represented in the child welfare system and are denied placements with other family members more frequently than other children in the system. The lawsuit was filed against several state officials, including Hank Whitman of the Department of Family and Protective Services and Gov. Greg Abbott; Harris County and several Harris County employees; ad litem attorneys, who are named by judges to represent children; and service agencies.

Just one vote left for Houston pension reform plan

Houston's pension reform plan is one vote away from the governor's desk after the final approval of the Texas Senate Tuesday evening. The lower chamber added three amendments friendly to firefighters when it first approved the measure earlier this month, but those provisions were stripped from the bill Sunday night by a conference committee tasked with reconciling the two versions of the legislation, Senate Bill 2190. Sen. Joan Huffman, the Houston Republican who carried the bill, said the House changes were reversed because they "threatened the financial outlook of the reform plan" and would have cost taxpayers money and burdened the already strained city budget. Turner's proposal also would cut $2.8 billion in worker benefits, cap the city's future costs even in the event of a market downturn, and would split a $1 billion infusion of bond proceeds between the underfunded police and municipal plans.

University of St. Thomas may eliminate philosophy programs

The University of St. Thomas - named after philosopher and theologian St. Thomas Aquinas - may eliminate philosophy programs, a signal of financial strain and a broader move toward professional programs at the private Montrose university. School administrators are reviewing student interest, department offerings and existing costs this month in advance of a June board meeting, sparking outcry among alumni and faculty. Supporters of the department have raised more than $11,500 for a faculty legal defense fund amid fear that the review will spur large-scale cuts. In Texas, many independent colleges have responded to guidance from state leaders by emphasizing the importance of boosting the number of graduates with science, technology, engineering and math degrees, said Ray Martinez, president of the Independent Colleges and Universities of Texas. The Board of Directors can terminate faculty contracts because of a decline in enrollment, consolidation of departments or other reorganization, termination of programs or courses or severe financial crisis. Michael Olivas, who directs the University of Houston's higher education law and governance institute, said withholding a contract based on a review process that has not yet concluded is out of line with accepted practices. Word spread of the delayed contract to an alumni Facebook group last week, spurring donations to the legal defense fund.
